? ? There was no question who was the better team on this particular Friday in Kennedale?s loss to Stephenville 56-24, but, Kennedale had its moments. Sophomore Juwan Washington proved that he was a player of the future as he cut and danced his way down the field. Seeing Donny Darville break through the line and rumble 89 yards for a touchdown late in the game was fun. Watching Quarterback Zac Michener do what he does best, fool the defense, pull the ball down and sprint for a quick 20-25 yards. {{more}}

? ? Kennedale did prove that it could control the ball as it marched 70 yards in a 12 play drive in the 2nd quarter and another 75 yard -14 play drive in the 3rd quarter, scoring each time. But that was all for not in a game that saw Stephenville roll up 677 yards, 478 of that by air.

It was almost worth the cost of admission.
